george bush. >> guest: they were excited to get rid of 12 years of reagan-bush. you have to realize in 1992, it was economically pretty depressed. people as much as they did in 2001 at op to miss him. they wanted to turn the page. they want to see the country in a different direction. there was someone who presented the ideology is baby boomers. it seemed very natural that they would get us excited and caught up in that. >> host: in train to come read the entire time and mtv as alcohol and smoke for a committed vegetarian and a virgin. was that rare? >> guest: to have all of those things in the same person, yeah, that was pretty rare. some punk rockers would call that straight edge. there are an entire stream within the punk rock community that feel like they need control of your body is the wisest thing you can do. i did not have that sort of intention are philosophy or foresight. it just so happened i had been sober. i didn't find drugs and alcohol did anything for me. i was worried i would be something impulsive and if i were under the influence. i honestly didn't need them. it w
using former president george w. bush and his recent heart procedure as an example. if mr. bush visited a general internist with -- he would not have had cardiac testing. what value does a stress test had for an otherwise healthy 66-year-old? no study showed it improvesout comes. the initial unnecessary streeng tests are usually paid for by medicare, further stressing our health care system. dr. mark siegel took issue with that account in an opinion piece in usa today. he's commending the efforts of the former president's doctors. dr. siegel, a member of our fox news medical aid team and professor of medicine at new york university medical center. you didn't sympathy much of that article, did you? >> physicians should not be speculating wildly about facts they have, let alone media experts. doctors doing that, oncologists saying he should have a colonoscopy not a stress test. i got information from the bush camp to counter this. number one, he was having symptoms. one-third of all heart attacks occur in people with atypical symptoms like he was having. someone exercising as vigorously a
. >> a former white house political director under president george w. bush, and maxwell, a democratic strategist and contributor for ebony.com, thank you both for joining us. >> thank you, heather. >> just to summaryize, the idea is to freeze the current undocumented -- in place, give them work permits and perhaps for a better deal under the next president. the move would not be without precedent for this administration. stopped the deportation of hundreds of thousands of undocumented youth through its deferred action program. politically some argue that all president obama needs to implement plan b is proof congress can't get the job done. matt, is this a possibility? and what is the fallout? >> you know, heather, i guess obama would never surprise me by doing something like this with so many other things he's done. he believes in raw president shshl power. i think it would be a massive mistake. i think democratic leadership would be very upset about this. it would be in essence taking this issue out of the hands of the elected officials in congress whose job it is to adjudicate on t
" saying this morning that you see from christie something close to what george w. bush did in 1998, shoring up support among hispanics, african-americans, even as he was seeking re-election in texas in '98, trying to get the broader appeal for the party. it worked for him in 2000. >> this debate with rand paul i think is a little sterile, because you have the rand paul camp saying the party needs principles. well, of course it does, because any party without principles is rudderless and passive. and you have chris christie saying you need power and a compelling governing agenda. well, of course you do because that's the only way you effect your principles. so it's not either/or. it's both. i think what christie is after is the george w. bush model saying this is a model for the presidential race and what he would hope to do is cement that establishment slot in the primary and hope he's facing a divided field on the right. and if history is any guide, that's a pretty good way to win a republican no, ma'am nation. >> robert gibbs? >> and the peatwathway may have gotten a little clear
reverend joe watkins, former white house aide to george h.w. bush, and author of "let's get free: a hip-hop theory of justice." thank you for joining us today. you know, what struck me most listening to eric hold ther week, as i said, was you have -- this is a democratic administration, eric holder comes out and embraces themes not too long ago in american politics would not have just been suicidal, my first question is, paul, how significantly have ching things changed? >> a sea change. i saw "the butler," the heroic civil rights movement from lynching, jim crow, if we think about african-americans and criminal justice system of 1930s, '40s, '50s, those were the good old days. now disparity is worse. more blacks in the criminal justice system than slaves in 1950s. one out of three black men on his way to prison, so something has got to be done. that's why the attorney general was stepping up. >> i mean, eleanor, thinking back to -- we showed 1986 in there, you can go through bill clinton embracing three strikes and you're out in the 1990s, what has changed culturally and politically to
believe that george bush and our supreme court expect our supreme court that it is more dangerous than al qaeda. the rulings that they have made are so naive, one that i can think of is the it's the same as businesses the same as individuals and anyone with common sense knows a corporation is not an individual. but it is now. and the idea of it being the supreme court unjustly gave then george bush the presidency, our country is divided and we will stay divided until then and when it will be corrected, i do not know but some day the justice has to come out of it. host: hope your voice improvs. om the next year the primary challenge for senator mitch mcconnell and his democratic opponent he is expected to face on led by piece mitch mcconnell pointing out failing to back the push to defund the signature health care law even if that means shutting down government. the supporters on friday with the subject line mcconnell surrenders to read on obama care and senator mitch mcconnell is accused of raising the white flag. they say he needs to start with the state-wide media campaign. he now ru
way. >> eric: brad blakeman is former assistant to george w. bush, and former chief of staff. welcome to you both. what will republicans do? >> republicans should play chess and not russia roulette. the strategy is to distort, divide, and distract us, the 3d strategy. we shouldn't fall into that trap. the fox news poll suggests that the american people don't like obamacare overwhelmingly, and they believe that it' it's in or best interest to repeal or replace it, so the job for republicans is to dismantle as much as we can. the president has done great job of it already. he's now eliminated the business obligation for obamacare to kick in, and the individual contribution. so the president is doing a nice job. unions are lining up against it. let's not shoot ourselves in the foot. let's have in the spring and summer of next year as we gear up to 2014 a plan in place where we solve obama care, but we also tackle the economy, and not fall for the democrats wanting us to shut down the government. we should keep our eye on the prize, and that's 2014. >> eric: chris, do you think that obama
this president than it was under george w. bush. you cannot tell people who are hurting that it's getting better. they don't want to hear that. they don't want to hear it from pundits. they don't want to hear it from the president. >> before you say the word sequester. >> we need to create the kind of jobs that the american people need in order to survive and prosper. >> let me get you back to what i promised here. we had this rnc meeting in massachusetts. chris christie, not always a favorite among conservatives certainly in the republican party, had this to say about 2016. >> it's a matter we have to win. if we don't win, we don't govern. if we don't govern, what we do is shout into the wind. and so i am going to do anything i need to do to win. >> so new jersey, right? i'm going to do anything i need to do to win. first of all, he's running. >> yeah. >> right? >> i agree. >> and second of all, is there anything wrong with that message? >> the question is you want to win. he wants to win as a republican. he's going to be what he has been as governor of new jersey, a successful lower tax, less
is a disciple of george w. bush. that's right. is he a bush cronie. he raised hundreds and thousands of dollars. nowhere, okay, then out of nowhere bush appoints chris christie to be the u.s. attorney for the state of new jersey in 2001 and so with a swipe of a pen christie goes from lawyer to lobbyist to u.s. attorney and of course back in those days it kind of paid to be a bush bootlicker. the next stop was governor chair for chris christie. he had little political experience but his jersey tough-style personality won him a governor seat against an embattled incumbent and that was jon corzine. his lack of experience shows in his job experience. first, christie -- he doesn't act like a governor. does your governor act like this? have you seen any presidents act like this? he acts like a schoolyard bully, is what he does. and we've seen it many times. the governor seems to take joy in just belittling citizens. does this guy pay taxes? does he deserve to be treated like that? let me tell you something. he goes after anybody who doesn't agree with him. >> you know what? and you know what? let me
become president of the united states and that would be a shame. those presidents are george clinton, grge bush, and barack obama. it seems more like an argument for many, of course, for many dr apprehensions, not more leniency. >>> forgethe reset. not exactly first move toward cordial relations. fox national security analyst k.t. mcfarland next. the boys used double miles from their capital one venture card to fly home for the big family reunion. you must be garth's father? hello. mother. mother! travelings easy with the venture card because you can fly any airline anytime. two words. double miles! this guy can act. wanna play dodge rock? oh, you guys! and with double miles you can actuay use, you never miss the fun. beard growing contest and go! ♪ win! what's in your wallet? are you flo? yes. is this the thing you gave my husband? well, yeah, yes. the "name your price" tool. you tell us the price you want to pay, and we give you a range of options to choose from. careful, though -- that kind of power can go to your head. that explains a lot. yo, buddy! i got this. gimme o
was conservative, hoped he was. the president, george h.w. bush did, then he turned out not to be and the mantra was not more suitors. they're making sure that they know the pedigree much more deeply before they nominate somebody so that they're not going to change. clarence thomas said i ain't evolving. so far he hasn't really. [laughter] >> speaking of not evolving is a concern i have. we're very interested in media law and where the court may go on media law, including these technologies we're talking about. court might not be as comfortable with it. i know i have a worry that down the road there may be bad law made by justices who aren't as comfortable with the technologies, they're comfortable with say television or radio but maybe snot internet. do any of you share these concerns or see issues arising on this? >> i think they have those oncerns. i did a column last week where the justices said that they don't really understand very well these technology issues and that they know they have to deal with cell phone capabilities and easier ways to track people without having a cop follow them
for george w. bush. well to you both, ladies. >> thank you. >> the president said himself he was outraged by this potential conduct targeting conservative groups and other political groups. he said he would not tolerate it if the investigation reads lehr what about the personal emails? >> what's ironic is that they want to invade her personal email in order to show that the tea party groups' privacy was invaded. i think at a certain point you have to say we have done everything we can do. we have looked at all the professional emails. we vice president found what we are looking for. we haven't found anything truly linking lerner to some type of scandal. we have got to let it go. at what point is darrell issa going to stop this fishing expedition. just because is he not finding what he wants, doesn't mean he gets to keep going. i think what we have all learned in this scandal is yes. the irs probably overstepped its bounds in looking into these groups. frankly they looked into just as many liberal groups. >> that's not true. >> that's not true. >> including one i worked for. >> shannon: le
. he was formerly deputy assistant to president george w. bush. john verga, president-elect of the national association of government communicators. starting with carolyn, let's see what you have to say about the subject. >> i want to tell you about a couple surveys i conducted this year and the previous year that are relevant to that topic. reporters to cover all federal agencies in washington. respondents for margin of error of about 7%. i surveyed current and former members of the national association of government communicators. i bet 150 four responses with a margin of error of about 4.3%. 154 responses, with a margin of error about 4.3%. focused on the interview process. i want to talk about preapproval and routing. believe they have a better idea than reporters about who in their agency would be the best person to give an interview on a given topic. three quarters of journalists reported that they had to get approval before they could interview an agency employee. out of 10 reporters say that their requests for interviews were forwarded to pao's. that is the int
stone and damon didn't think he did enough to dismantle president george w. bush's anti-terror policies.dis >> these are two colonels anyway, at least in this army. any chance that they'll move to the other side? that this will start a rethinking of their world view? >> you're laughing now. >> they're criticizing barack obama because he's not living up to their standards. they'll look for someone who's even more hard up than barack obama. >> a lot of citizens were heartened business remarks that ashton kutcher made at the celebrity choice awards. listen to what he said. >> when i was 13 i had my first job with any dad carrying shingles up on a roof. then i got a job at a restaurant. i never had a job in my life that i was better than. i was always lucky enough to have a job. and i never quit any job until i had my next job. so opportunities look a lot like work. >> boy, that sounds -- it doesn't sound too liberal to me. >> no, not at all, but how sad is it that it's big and newsworthy when a celebrity comes out and says something like, if you want to be successful, go ahead and work har
for nbc news for the past 20 years and prior to that, he was assistant secretary defense in the george h.w. bush administration. and tony morrow at the end who covers it court for the national law journal. prior to that, he was a reporter for legal times, a reporter for "usa today. he's been on the court beat since 1979. but first, i want to introduce terry towner who is in the middle of all of these reporters. she is here because -- she's an academic from oakland university and studies things that are quite relevant to the particular panel. one is the supreme court and the press. and the other is the role of the new media. so we'll start with professor towner and then after she finishes her presentation, then we'll go down the line from tony on. and then after they make their presentations, we will open it up for questions from the audience. so, tara? >> thank you, richard, thank you for inviting me. i'm terry towner from oakland university located in rochester, michigan. i specialize in american politics and medium politics. this is one of the reasons i'm here. and particularly my rese
